Man Convicted of Sexually Abusing Young Boy

Jordan Jordan
Feb. 2, 2018 – A Criminal Court jury took just 35 minutes Wednesday to convict a 55-year-old man of sexually abusing a young boy for several years at a home in the Grahamwood area, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Ricky Jordan, whose bond was revoked following the verdict, faces 8 to 12 years in prison when he is sentenced for aggravated sexual battery later this month by Judge Jennifer Nichols.
The boy told jurors that Jordan began sexually abusing him in 2009 when he was four years old and it continued for several years. The boy told investigators that Jordan would say he was “fixing him” when the abuse would occur.
The case was handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Devon Lepeard of the DA’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Asst. Dist. Atty. Paige Munn.
The SVU prosecutes cases of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse of child victims; rape and aggravated rape of adult victims, and abuse of elderly and vulnerable adults. The unit reviews child-victim cases with Shelby County’s multi-agency Child Protection Investigative Team.
